Tournaments completed in 2020 will accumulate world ranking points, although such points will only be included with the unfreezing of the World Rankings.
The exact model for the unfreezing of the World Rankings, and how subsequent rankings are structured and valued, will be released shortly.
According to reports, Indian players are expected to take part in the remaining part of the tour. India has qualified for both Uber and Thomas Cup and the team is expected to fly to Denmark to take part in the tournament in October.
